One of at least three (and probably more) POP/SMTP mail client packages for the Newton. The one I am currently using. Available at the Fetch Software site for about fifty U.S. dollars.
New Newton Messagepads come with a reportedly restricted version of Enroute. The full version of Enroute supports package transfer with E-mail through MIME. (Additional note - I now have EnRoute, thanks to my purchase of an MP2000. The mailing of text file works fine. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to mail packages from my Amiga to my Newton yet.)
This is my GoFetch setup (in the Setup directory - under Generic mail setup)
Setup Name : Generic Mail Setup POP User Name : guest POP Password : taco POP server address : amiga POP return address : newton SMTP server address : amiga Real name : David Fong
This is my setup from within the 'GoFetch Mail' program preferences.
Connect Options : Retrieve unread mail+Retrieve read mail +Show connect slip (all other options turned off)
These settings are partly the result of limitations of the UMSrfc program I used, which does not support UIDL and TOP.
Remaining options are the default.
When connecting - Do request only Disconnect - immediately When receiving - Download mail Skip messages - Don't skip WHen sending - Specify when After sending - Delete File read items in - Unfiled items
I don't really have any idea how this affects the operation of NIE and GoFetch. I have, in fact, two owner setups. The one that I think counts is the one I choose whenever GoFetch asks for a Owner/Site.
E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org Internet : email@example.com GoFetch Mail Setup : Generic mail setup
I actually have another owner setup which contains my real E-mail address. My 'Home' worksite info contains...
Internet Setup : Direct Serial
